The more I researched it, the more I was convinced it would make a great movie. I had been writing/directing independent films (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-7Q7c4Cgpg to view my award winning short "Execution at County Jail"). I wrote the screenplay of the Phineas story. Long story condensed, after it won a few screenplay festival awards, and still not being able to convince any producers of it's worthiness (some seem to have an inversion to stories that take place in any time period before Frasier was airing) I decided that the chances of getting a novel published were more likely and would help get the film made (which I will be directing).
I am now proud to announce that SB Addison Books will be publishing the novel in December. Moral is, never give up on your dreams. This has been a ten year journey for me. It doesn't happen overnight. But, anything worthwhile in life, usually takes time. I will post an excerpt shortly.
